Need a Holiday Gift Guide for that special someone in your life that lives with chronic illness or pelvic pain or are you looking for items for your own wish list?
I know, I know, it may be a little bit too early to start talking about Holiday Gift Guide For Those Living with Pelvic Pain but this year I set a goal that I would do most (if not all!) of my Christmas shopping before December 1st! Plus, there was a little extra push this year: on the last weekend in September, my boyfriend’s side of the family pulled names for the annual Christmas gift exchange.
In order to reach this December 1st goal, I couldn’t put it off any longer!
That is what gave me the idea to create a gift guide for the pelvic pain and chronic illness community.
Since getting to create this, it’s given me a whole month to get creative, make gifts, and get some online shopping done (on a very strict budget this year). Creating this guide has definitely got ideas running through my mind and it prematurely put me in the holiday spirit! I’m ready to give this Christmas and show my loved ones how much I appreciate their love and support this holiday season + always.
So get on your cozy reading socks, pour yourself some tea, put on some holiday tunes and enjoy these gift guides I have put together. Or share with others to give gift hints or save to Pinterest to view later!
Happy (early) Holidays, everyone!
